This is a very nice restaurant where you can count on good food and excellent service.
3rd time eating here. Did not dissapoint. Made reservations a couple days before and had to keep modifying it due to my husbands late meeting. Despite it bring extremely busy on a Friday night, we were seated with 10 minutes.
The Wild Boar Pappardelle did not disapoint and my husband loved his seafood pasta dish. Food came out very quickly and the waiter attentive, though they do spend more time with the tables with the pretty women!
We had the pasta faglioli soup to start. The entrees we ordered were lasagna and linguini with clam sauce. I didn’t love the meat used in the lasagne, but the sauce was excellent. My daughter loved the linguini! I ordered the gelato wth espresso for dessert and was disappointed in the extremely small scoop of gelato. The tiny espressso overtook the gelato and it was like having a cup of coffee rather than being a nice combo.
The waiter seemed stressed, but he was efficient and the support staff were friendly.
lack of services - had to request butter and other things several times.
only one waiter who is not attentive.
pasta is good but on the average scale.
We have been to Assiaggo many times. The food and service is always outstanding. We went before going to a matinee at Cinerama. The theater is only half a block away so very it is very convenient.
Our dinner was exceptional. One of our favorite restaurants in Seattle.
We were delighted with Assaggio! This restaurant features fresh foods, beautifully yet simply prepared. We enjoyed the Linguini con Vongole and the delicious minestrone soup. We will be back! Mille Grazie !
Assaggio's is by far the best Italian restaurant in Seattle. My family is from Italy and I can tell you that this is Italian food with a special ingredient...made with passion. The great food and the warm atmosphere are spectacular, and the hospitality that the owner Mauro gives you is one of a kind.
We were a family group of 7, had a reservation but were seated at what has to be the worst table in the house. Right in the intersection of 3 server routes. Table made for 4 but crammed for 7. We had to have the glassware removed otherwise there would have been no table space. It's the little things that you remember next time you think of a restaurant that cause you to give it a mental thumbs down before you choose another restaurant. If you have 1-4 in your party, it can be a fun place but after multiple visits, this one left a pretty bad taste.
Great spot for authentic, classic Italian dining. Service is gracious...and not at all hurried. Great for special occasions and dinner with friends.
The food was great, the service was pretty terrible, but just with one waiter in particular.
I have been frequenting this establishment well over15 yrs ( I live a hour away at best )So many birthdays / celebrations spent here ! I made reservation a month in advance ( mind you it’s the slow time in Seattle ,if there is one anymore) I requested a table by the window. Thursday night ; raining crazy , got there place empty. Sorry no window seats available ? We were seated in a corner both ...I saw a single person sitting at a window table for a good hour alone ?? The food is very good here we had gnocchi , pasta special and pasta 3 ways all very well prepared and delicious !
Best Italian in Seattle.
Had a terrific meal for a larger business group. From appetizers to dessert, the food and service were terrific!
Assagio never fails to please. The food (in this instance, the polenta, which was one of the daily specials) was first-rate and the wait staff very attentive.
Great service great food!
I love dining at Assaggio. LOVE. Yes, the food is excellent. I wouldn't dream of being there and NOT ingesting the Insalate Francesca. Yesterday, I followed that with the Linguine Vongole: Fresh pasta, fresh clams and a simple but elegant, rich sauce that was so perfectly seasoned. (I would have been happy to be one of the clams floating around in the bowl.)
But it's not just the phenomenal, authentic food. As soon as you walk in the door, Mauro and his staff make you feel welcome. The restaurant is beautifully appointed, and very comfortable. The service is impeccable.
Assaggio will make you happy!
Great service but food was mediocre.
Great energy, food was amazing, service was impeccable and the host welcomed us like we have been friends for years! I will be back next time I’m in Seattle! Thanks for a great night!
The food is okay, but the sauces are bland and uninspired.
Superbly executed pasta dishes, outstanding service, and charming ambiance made for a fantastic business lunch.
Always a treat to eat at Assaggioo. Service is excellent, cocktails and food delicious.
We had high hopes for this place as we dropped by on Saturday night and they weren’t able to seat walk ins until 9. Usually a sign of a good restaurant. We decided to make a reservation for early Monday evening and try again. The best way to describe this place is average. The food was bland, nothing special. Service was ok. Our server didn’t clear pates between our appetizer and entree. The venue is nice and at night has a great ambiance but if you’re going for food, maybe skip this one.
I hosted dinner for nine people to celebrate my 40th Birthday. Everything was so easy from making the reservation to them calling to confirm (nice I didn’t have to), to being seating and allowing us to hang out for a couple of hours and enjoy a nice evening.
In town on vacation
Was thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish with excellent service, tasty food and comfortable attractive surroundings.
If I lived in Seattle it would be a favorite dining venue!
We were greeted enthusiastically, service was great. Food was excellent!
This is one of the best places in Seattle if you love Italian food! We had a truly special dinner with really attentive service, great food, and a huge selection in the menu. We have to go back many times just to sample all of the great things on the menu we wanted to order.
We had apps and wine in the bar. Everything was wonderful.
Anniversary dinner! Delicious pasta sampler!
Love this place ! We always eat here every time we come up to Seattle- pasta can't be beat!
Mauro and his team always deliver a fantastic experience, kudos to a Seattle institution!
Out of cheesecake. 😒 they have the best cheesecake. The best Caesar salad. The best risotto. Highly recommended.
Good local joint. Homey atmosphere, food is old school Italian, executed well, except for the meatball appetizer. Meatballs were small, tough, and had a slightly off taste. I sent them back.
Mauro always has good food and wine. We come here to indulge ourselves on some of the tastiest food in Seattle.
Had a wonderful dinner with 10 friends for my 25th birthday. The waiting staff was very friendly and attentive, which we greatly appreciated! Food was served fresh and everyone was satisfied with their meal.
The food was mostly tasty but portions very small and quite expensive.
My husband and I met long/term friends for dinner. The food, service and hugs were everything we hoped for. I lovely evening.
